. that's well to the north. so we have this big area of high pressure in place. that's acting like a heat pump. so looking at high temperatures today, in the 90s for denver. 96 degree. triple digits in phoenix as well as dallas. looks like the heat wave will remain with us for several days to come. so for the fourth of july, yeah, it's going to be hot and the firecrackers. 80s and low 90s across a good chunk of the nation. more of your forecast coming up. >>> and the weather is a major factor in the battle against the devastating wildfires in new mexico including the one threatening the los alamos nuclear lab. >> reporter: as firefighters try to keep the flames at bay with control burn, the runaway fire continues to consume trees and brush in the rugged mountains above the town of los alamos. the fire has now blackened more than 113,000 acres but it's moving away from town and the nuclear laboratory. good news according to the fire chief, but not enough. >> kind of between a rock and hard place, because we're trying to repopulate but we don't want to put people in danger. >> reporter: los
was try to create a new sense of urgency to see if there's a chance to put the big deal back together that he and speaker boehner were close to having this deal last week. but in many ways, this speech was almost oh post mortem, almost setting up the blame game for the fact that no big deal is going to happen. and no matter what happens here at the end of the day, the debt ceiling is going to go up. but nobody is going to be happy about the deal. i can tell you this, ann, i had a bunch of democrats that said to me, would have been a good speech to give two weeks ago. >> i know that he called for public activism, so much so that we hear the capitol hill websites were crashing last night because so many people were trying to e-mail their representatives. it looks like he spooked main street, jim? will he spook also wall street? >> no, not at all. wall street is calm. the markets are looking good today. we had a blip down in the indicators between 9:0 and about 9:20. they came right back. no one is buying the panic, the sky-rocketing interest rates scenario. >> that said, hedge funds are
. the key sticking point is this issue of raising the debt limit, large enough, big enough, so that it gets us through 2012, gets us into the spring of 2013. right now, of course, the boehner bill and what republicans were supporting would have this debt limit come to another vote in the next -- >> at this point in time -- >> harry reid wants to do is simply figure out a way to satisfy the second round of deficit reduction, create a stronger trigger potentially, whatever he can come to, to get more republicans to support his way in order to get this debt limit passed 2012. i think he's going to come to an agreement. the question is, how big of an agreement is it? is it an agreement that barely gets the eight republicans he wants? or does it get 20 republicans and sends a strong, bipartisan message to make sure this thing doesn't get gummed up again in the house. >> does he have a dance partner in terms of a republican willing to negotiate? >> reporter: he's got a few dance partners potentially, but right now he's not working very well with mitch mcconnell. that's not clear. but don't be sur

no way, that they're not happy with what speaker boehner put forward for them? >> look, that is a big part of whatever takes place here, because they'rele really digging in. there's some house members who say no new taxes whatsoever, even on the wealthy americans, and the president saying that you need to get some kind of revenue here in order to make the system work for the long term health of the economy. that's very important. what can they come up with that can woo over those republicans who are being very clear about not wanting those taxes to go up. >> dan lothian, thank you. >>> all right. so the two plans on the table right, the democratic backed senator reid plan and the republican led plan from senator -- speaker boehner. let's begin with senator reid's blueprint, cuts $2.7 trillion over the next decade. a big piece is what senator reid calls the winding down of the wars in iraq and afghanistan. that will save $1 trillion. republicans have called that a gimmick, savings from wars that are winding down, even though by the way, the same savings were counted in some republican

? >> he's the big key to getting a deal between the president and the leaders. he is not the key to getting the vote in the house of representatives. mitch mcconnell is important. you have the republican house that is resisting a deal with the president and resisting raising the debt limit. you need republicans to move forward, but mitch mcconnell has shown a willingness much more f. he and a senior leader can make a deal t becomes more difficult for republicans to block it in the house. they will lose the republicans anyway. remember, john boehner passed the his plan that has no chance of going forward in the senate. it has debt limit increase on passage of a balanced budget amendment which is not going to happen. mitch connell can try to move that process along, but john boehner has to figure out how to get to a majority in the house. that's why nancy pelosi is relevant again as well as members of the caucus. >> this passage of a budget amendme amendment, if that's not put in there in some shape or form whether tied to raising the debt ceiling or a side bar, what does that say
